JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - If you want to get a jump on tax season, the IRS “Free File” program is now open.

It’s available to anyone who makes an adjusted gross income of $72,000 or less.

The service is free, but a government audit found that 14-million people ended up paying for tax assistance with their 2019 returns.

The IRS says it has tried to make it easier for people to find its free resources.
